Emmy Recap: Big Night For ‘Breaking Bad;’ Billy Crystal Gives Robin Williams Touching Tribute [Video]

Another year, another Emmys!

The big winners for the evening were “Breaking Bad” and “Modern Family,” but the emotional pull of the night was definitely Billy Crystal’s tribute to Robin Williams.

Host Seth Meyers made the show fun, relying more on Hollywood jokes and help from the a-list audience than any song and dance numbers.

Amy Poehler thinks she’s Beyonce, Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus made out big time, and Weird Al Yankovic sang better versions of current TV show theme songs.
